Looks like a nice late war(last 10,000 made) PPK.
So you need a late war mag, flat bottom or finger extension,
to complete your gun. Legacy Collectibles has both.
The mag that came with gun may be for a 7.65 Kommer IV.

Renaissance Wax. Being vegetable tanned, I know using oils will discolor, rancify, polymerize, and even break down the leather. Walther leather in the WWII era is a very high quality black pigmented what seems to be thick bullhide. Iím wondering if bull collagen or something can be used? Versus just hydrating the leather with moisture and waxing which can causes skin layers to delaminate from what I have seen in humid environments?
The suggestions will be varied. Renaissance Wax/renwax is a conservation approved preservative. It will not restore moisture or condition, but will preserve the leather from future deterioration. A friend used a product call's Black Rock. Others use Connolly Hide Care, the leather preservative cream sold by Jaguar auto dealers. The holster in the OP shows evidence of leather red rot, which is not reversible. I would love to know what the printing on the tag reads.

Any ZM made PPK is a piece of history IMO.
